Emergency Training for Faith Communities in Response to Violent Extremism

June 30, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Caution: Violent extremism is rising! Is your congregation safe?

Church, synagogue, mosque, temple, and other congregational leaders and security departments are urged to attend this special emergency training, briefing, and active shooter safety presentation to prepare places of worship for potential attacks and violent extremism, such as the shooting at the Chabad of Poway in San Diego and the massacres at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, Christchurch Mosques in New Zealand, and Emmanuel AME Church in Charleston.

The FBI, US Attorney’s Office, Portland Police Bureau, and other authorities will provide the most current information, data, and tools available. The training is free and open to all leaders from houses of worship.

Law enforcement will present crucial and potentially life-saving information and surveilled intelligence about specific trends and potential threats. Notwithstanding existing measures and personnel a facility may already have in place, including off-duty officers, these authorities have up-to-date information and resources needed to bolster current security efforts. All faith leadership teams are urged to attend.

For more information, contact OneCOP at (503) 809-0990.

The “One Congregation One Precinct” (OneCOP) initiative facilitates positive, ongoing partnerships between local law enforcement agencies and diverse congregations of every faith tradition. This includes organizing various crime and violence prevention/solving efforts, hosting public safety briefings, providing cultural and sensitivity trainings, conducting officer appreciation events, holding community safety workshops, and hosting forums focused on bettering the relationship between cops and citizens.
